Open Up to Make Room to Be Entrusted

Great responsibility is required of those who desire greatness...

Ephesians 6:10 KJV

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

*This short verse speaks volumes about God's capabilities, especially when it comes to your own lifestyle. Yet, we are slow to entrust our life to the very one who gave us life. We are often aware of God's capability to enhance the lives of others as we listen intently to their testimonies, we notice all the good elements of the planet that bring us happiness, and we celebrate the victories we receive or that others arrive at daily. Yet, we still can't quite grasp the desire to seek Him for EVERY aspect of our own lives....We still freak out even when we know who is on our side; we are still making our own plan of action to fix a situation; we still set our own scheduled; you are still telling people how you feel vs what you should be led to say; and we still open up our mouths to say the opposite of what He promises. Why is that? Could it be that you are so in tuned with getting your point across that you can't put God first? Believing in His capabilities and not remixing it with our own words and agendas seems to be a stronghold for many, yet it is so simple to fix...Think about it: Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all things shall be added. Yet, in those simplistic instructions, people still miss the mark to get their point across or try to be in or a part of things they were never meant to face. I challenge you today to think of the areas that you never discuss with God, barely visit with Him on, or every now and then place before Him. Take these things and people before Him to see what He says, and watch Him place His super on your natural understanding when you bare all to Him.
